Emil Amok’s Takeout: Another kind of Ted Talk, as I talk to my philosopher pal about George Floyd, the pandemic, and other ills.

ANOTHER KIND OF TED TALK:  If you’ve been following my series of talks with Philosophy Professor Ted Schatzki, you know he’s my old friend from college who I called for the first time in over 40 years when the pandemic hit. We had a reunion. Since then we’ve had 3 conversations. The first two he talked about the fear of civil unrest.

In our third conversation last week, the spark that set off the U.S. powder keg happened. The violence hadn’t started yet.  But we do talk about George Floyd, among other things. The point is we talk and have a conversation, which is probably the best thing people can do with each other right now.
